    This belonged to my grandmother .I haven't been able to find another lamp like this one and would love some info on it. On the brass fitting it says "Abco Nutmeg and I believe April 13 1876". I have found red minature Abco...but no others in this yellow.
    If anyone has any info- I would love to hear about it.
    It has a small chip on th top piece, but otherwise it is in perfect condition.

      The name and patent date on the brass isn't necessarily the manufacturer of the glass or the date of the lamp/burner. I feel that the glass is Bohemian. You should add it to the Bohemian art glass cw category. Maybe someone there will know more.
